Ezekiel 24:16

Son of man, behold, I take away from you the desire of your eyes with a stroke: yet neither shall you mourn nor weep, neither shall your tears run down.
Read Chapter 24

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Stroke; pestilence, or sudden death. This would make the loss of a dear wife still more afflicting. Yet such distress will fall upon the whole nation, (Calmet) and misery shall increase so much, that a private loss will be almost forgotten. (Haydock) Curæ leves loquuntur, graviores silent. (Seneca, Troad.) When a loss is foreseen, it is more easily borne. Private calamities sink in public ones. (Worthington)

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
